2. Frank's Beard Elixir

3. Intensive Eye Treatment
£95, Tom Ford, 0870 034 2566
The man who once sold us sex now sells us skincare – and very good it is too. This cream will soothe and nourish worn-out eyes, restoring radiance.

£11.50, Clinique, 0870 034 2566
Don't cause a stink this summer, try Clinique's deodorant – one of the brand's most popular items in its "for men" range – and avoid unfortunate underarm tidemarks.
5. Energising moisture

7. Anti-hair loss roller
£21.90, Kerastase, 0800 316 4400
This new product promises to hold back the years a bit: simply roll it on receding corners and wait for it to stimulate growth.
